Honeypot Captcha

What is a Honeypot Captcha?

It's a particular type of captcha. By creating numerous hidden fields on a website to deceive bots, honeypot evolves. Bots are designed to complete all fields, including those that are invisible. When a bot fills it out, the website can tell right away that it is not a real person. This excellent trap has the outstanding benefit of not forcing visitors to play unpleasant captcha games or waste time filling out a tonne of needless information. They probably have no idea how a honeypot captcha looks or experience any interactions when browsing a website. Smart bots may occasionally be able to recognize this approach and stumble across the concealed fields without much effort.
